FAIR LAWN, N.J. , Aug. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Henry Bros .
Electronics, Inc. (Amex: HBE), a turnkey provider of technology-based
integrated electronic security solutions, today announced results for the
second quarter ended June 30, 2008 .
The Company reported revenue of $15.1 million for the second quarter of
2008, representing an increase of 11.9% over revenue of $13.5 million for the
same period a year ago. The New Jersey subsidiary experienced a significant
increase in revenue as a result of work completed on contracts for several
large public agencies in the New York Metropolitan area. Revenue improvement
from the Arizona and Virginia subsidiaries also contributed to the Company's
top-line growth in the second quarter of 2008.
The Company reported net income of $337,261, or $0.06 per diluted share,
for the second quarter ended June 30, 2008 , representing an increase of 125%
over net income of $150,044, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the comparable
period of 2007.
Revenue for the six-month period ended June 30, 2008 was $31.0 million,
representing an increase of 27.2% over revenue of $24.4 million for the six
months ended June 30, 2007 . Net income for the 2008 six-month period was
$621,218, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(670,371), or
$(0.12) per diluted share, for the 2007 six-month period.
Backlog as of June 30, 2008 was $17.6 million, compared to $26.6 million
reported at December 31, 2007 . The decline in backlog is a primary result of
work completed on several large agency jobs in the New York Metropolitan area
which were booked in the second quarter of 2007. The Company expects to
receive initial purchase orders in the amount of approximately $5.8 million
under our previously disclosed subcontractor agreement with L-3 prior to the
end of August 2008 .
Jim Henry , CEO of Henry Bros . Electronics, stated, "We are pleased to
report continued success on a number of large-scale, multi-year integrated
security projects. Our ability to customize security solutions for large
businesses and enterprises located in major metropolitan areas has enhanced
our market position, elevating our Company to the forefront of our nation's
most critical security jobs."
Henry concluded, "Through our work with L-3 Communications, we are now
playing an integral role in the implementation of a Tactical Video Capture
System planned for installation at 15 U.S. Marine bases in the USA and abroad.
This project, valued at $326 million, of which we have a significant work
share, brings the most state-of-the-art technology to the USMC. Our role in
this important endeavor demonstrates the value of our solutions and services,
and has the power to bring forth additional opportunities in the future to
serve the needs of other large enterprises that require the most advanced
video surveillance systems."
Excluding the effect from the L-3 Contract discussed above, the Company is
reiterating its forecasted operating profit margin of 4% on $65 million of
revenue for fiscal 2008. In addition, the Company is currently in the process
of finalizing an increase in its Revolving Credit Agreement with TD Banknorth
from $4 million to $8 million in order to support these new projects and
